It's true for the U.S. Women's National Team and for so many more:

What a weekend! I'm beyond thrilled with our U.S. Women's National Team and their inspiring victory in the World Cup.

One thing I want to make sure you didn't miss: Did you hear the chants at the end of the match? I sure did.

Equal. Pay.

On average, American women earn about 81 cents on the dollar compared to men.

That gap's real in cities. It's real in small towns. It's incredibly real for women of color.

It means a lifetime of fewer opportunities. Of sometimes being unable to save. Of having to make more and harder choices when it comes to bills, debts, and educational opportunities.

As true as it is for national heroes like the members of our Women's National Team, it's just as true for teachers, for entry-level workers, for managers—wage inequality impacts everyone.

That's why I'm running for Congress: because national problems require national solutions and leaders who will fight for them.

Lee Zeldin has repeatedly stood in the way of progress. He might not want to end gender discrimination in pay, but I sure do.

Because women on Long Island, in New York, and across America deserve so much better.

For 25 years, I have been a common-sense businessman — not a career politician — so I look at things differently. I know about fixing dysfunction. It starts with hard work, a commitment to results, and perseverance — not scoring cheap political points. We can work together to provide opportunity and create an economy that works for all of us.
